YOU’D think that one of the biggest perks of being a member of the Royal Family is having access to some truly incredible jewellery, crowns and tiaras.
That said, it turns out crowns are incredibly difficult things to wear – as not only are they tricky to balance, but they’re also heavy too.

In 2018, The Queen appeared in a BBC documentary to discuss the 65th anniversary of her coronation.
During her 67-year reign, Her Majesty has only ever worn St Edwards gold crown once for her coronation and uses the Imperial State crown when she opens parliament.
Describing the crown as “unwieldy”, The Queen said: “Fortunately, my father and I had about the same sort of shaped head.
“Once you put it on, it stays. It remains itself.”
